With the winner heading into the biggest night of the year for the Premier League, the Southern Tigers travelled across town to face the North Adelaide Rockets. The contest was anticipated to have some hard-hitting defence and stellar offense and both were seen right through the entire contest. With the game being highly competitive throughout, the scores were 15-14 in favour of the Rockets at the first break. In what was a hard night from the field for the Rockets, they finished the game shooting just under 28% from the field and 20% from deep. Despite this negative for the Rockets, the Tigers too struggled on the floor finishing with 14 turnovers compared to the Rockets' 5. The Tigers did a fantastic job on the defensive end of the floor specifically trying to contain Alexander Starling (198-F-89, college: Beth.-Cookman). Despite finishing with a tied game high of 26-points, he shot 10-26 from the field and struggled at the free throw line finishing with 5-14. On the other end of the floor, despite holding Robert Linton (193-G) to under 9-points, the Rockets struggled to contain the breakout performance of Jordan Dodman (206-C-88). Dodman finished with 18-points, 14- rebounds (6-offensive) and a block. Adelaide 36er, Anthony Drmic (198-G/F-92, college: Boise St.) also finished with 26-points off 45% shooting although struggled a little from deep finishing 2-9. The second quarter was very much like the first, with the contest quite close and eventually the half finishing with a 2-point Tiger lead. With the scores reaching more than 20-points (21-21) with just over a 5-minutes remaining, the game looked to be close and potentially go down to the wire. Despite the slow building of the score-line, the tempo soon grew and the half finished at 32-34 after Dodman beating the buzzer for the slender lead after a Staude assist (8 assists). With the game continuing after the break, both sides continued to jostle for momentum with big plays on both ends of the floor. These big plays came in diverse ways for both sides including some extra hustle under the rim from Brad Jonnek, after grabbing an offensive rebound and scoring the second chance opportunity. Anthony Drmic also showed some of his dazzling moves by scoring off a pretty spin move. Both clubs missing their final possessions of the quarter helped show that it was still anybody's game with the Tigers leading by 1 (51-52) at Three Quarter Time. In what was a low scoring contest, the amount of hustle displayed the precision needed with every possession being crucial. During the final term, Alexander Starling's impact on the game was limited as he was pushed out of the contest. He was limited to 3-points in the final term which took its toll on the scoreboard. Miller too was also contained for the Rockets scoring contributing 5-points in the final term. Overall, the final quarter saw the Tigers outscoring their hosts 26-15 in what was the biggest differential of the night, with the previous quarters being a 1-possession game. With the Tigers beginning to take a relatively sturdy lead late in the contest, Michael Nwelue put an exclamation mark on what was a tough victory. Nwelue was on the receiving end of Staude's alley-oop pass resulting in an emphatic dunk. Nwelue notched his own double-double recording 13-points and 13 rebounds (5 offensive) in the Tigers-Rockets 3rd meeting. The final buzzer sounding less than 30 seconds of game time after the dunk saw the Tigers take the victory by what was the largest lead of the night, 12-points. The victory gives the Tigers the next week off resting up for the Grand Final, while the Rockets battle the West Adelaide Bearcats for the chance of a potential Tigers rematch in the biggest dance of the year.
